Saw this sailing boat on the reservoir liked the sail configuration and colour. I thought it would provide a splendid contrast to the green background and the blue of the res.

I see what you mean about the lower branches. I also take your point about sailing out of the shot and will take into consideration next time. Thanks for your comments about aperture size, I do appreciate that a higher f number will give a sharper shot through having a larger DOF. Once again thanks for your input.

Hi,
Frank has said it all as far as i am concerned. I have put up amod to give a bit of an idea. I#ve added some sea and trees in front of theboat and removed some from behind it, then I re-cropped the image to put the front of the boat in the rull of thirds.
Hope this helps.
Michael

Frank has covered it all. You have a nice image, but it could have been composed better. I tend to set f8 when on aperture priority for general shooting. In the lens sweet range and, with digital,('C' sensors) generally quite enough depth of field. However, that doesn't mean f8 should be used all the time, but is is a good stab between depth and adequate shutter speeds.
